Learn More About the Division
The Division of Diversity and Community Engagement is a national model for integrating diversity and community engagement into the core mission of a university. It works with a broad range of student, faculty, staff, and community constituents to help The University of Texas at Austin connect its intellectual resources to communities across Texas and offer education to those who may face the greatest challenges in accessing it. The Division focuses on four core pillars: inclusive campus, community engagement, K-12 education, and student success.

Giving Spotlight: Global Leadership & Social Impact
The Global Leadership and Social Impact program provides accessible study abroad programs that offer project-based academic internship opportunities with real-world work experience in three dynamic, rapidly changing cities: Beijing, China; Cape Town, South Africa; and San Jose, Costa Rica. New additions to the program include trips Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and Puebla, Mexico.
Your gift will help our future generation of global leaders take their college education by the horns and reach their full potential. Together, we can make study abroad a reality for hundreds of first-generation and underrepresented students across the state of Texas.
